Steam Tug Jumna

(1/1)

steamboatmodel:
While looking through some old magazine I came across a interesting article in the Aug. 1980 issue of Live Steam. It describes a little side paddle wheel tug called Jumna and says it now sits on the veranda of the Busselton Museum. The tug is only 12'6" overall with a 3' beam 5'5" over the paddle boxes and was made of 22 gauge galvanized iron. The Tug was built by Canon Robert Davies who was reported to be a prominent Australian model engineer. Does anyone know it this tug still exists?
Regards,
Gerald.
PS On doing some serching It looks like PJ and me have the same magazine
